Starting my Own Business: Sibylla Michelle Photography

I don't really remember how or where the idea initially came from, all I remember was getting up from where I was lying down at the time, running up to the computer and instantly creating my new little business as if it had been with me for years and had been all thoroughly and well thought over. Well, the truth is it hadn't. It was a simple spark that came from the heart and all I know is this: it feels like I always should have been doing this. Maybe this is my calling? But I will take each day as it comes...

And so without further ado, Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you
Sibylla Michelle Photography.

I will be specialising in family outdoor portrait photography. To begin with of course. And as my portfolio builds and hopefully the quality of my photographic lenses, as will my types of photo sessions I hope.

So yes...it feels good. My life right now. To be doing what I love, what I feel comfortable doing and hopefully making people happy. So far I've had some very ecstatic customers and this weekend is  a biggie for me, three client photo shoots in two days!

I know that I have still a long way to go and so much to learn but we all need to start from somewhere and this is my somewhere.

Congratulations! You do good work! If you feel up to it, maybe you should do a post on how to be a start-up photographer (how to get clients, how to prepare photo package options for your clients, etc.) for others who are looking to become photographers! My sister is just starting out and I would love to be able to pass some tips on to her! :)
